Sakura La An occupies the renovated top floor of a 50-year-old retro building dating back to 1964, the year of the Tokyo Olympics.

Our common area has a sunny terrace and garden, where guests can help themselves to coffee or green tea and enjoy our small library of books on Japanese art, architecture, pottery, tea ceremony (chanoyu), traditional kaiseki meals, and other traditional arts and crafts. Cultural experience programs for tea ceremony, kimono-dressing, and calligraphy are available (additional fees apply). A combined kimono-dressing and tea ceremony program is offered in our tranquil tatami-floored tearoom.

Sakura La An is more than just a place to sleep – it is ready to ensure that your stay is fun-filled and memorable. We look forward to ichigo ichie (一期一会) - the central concept of the tea ceremony, meaning“a once in a lifetime encounter”– and welcoming you to Osaka. View House Rules

    Favorite stay in Japan. It was super clean, quiet, friendly, and close to markets. Everything I could ask for. The free tea ceremony was fabulous. The front desk had Sutra writing equipment and warm snuggly blankets to use for free. Breakfast was very light continental style, but had plenty of the limited fare. Best hostel experience I’ve had.

    Staff was great. Very friendly and helpful. There were 6 beds in a room so there was enough privacy. There was also a couch and a mini fridge in the room. Close to metro line and about 15 mins from Dotombori. If I ever find myself in Osaka again I'd stay here again.

    We only stayed in the hostel for 1 night. Everyone from the staff was super friendly and nice to us. Everything was sparkling clean. The atmosphere of the common spaces is super nice. The whole building seemed to be very quiet and as we were recovering from a long flight and took a nap in the afternoon it was great. The matcha tea ceremony in the evening was quite interesting especially for us as first-timers in Japan.

    I enjoyed my stay a Space Hostel. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the cleaning crew was on top of it, the beds were comfy, the room had a temp control unit, and the showers were the best I encountered travelling through japan. Would definitely recommend!

    Really good hostel, good first stay in Japan. Very cheerful and helpful staff. The hostel setup with rooms being on 3 floors and a small common area does drop the level of social interactions. That is a bit of a miss in my opinion, as I see it as a core attribute of hostels.

    My friends and I had a wonderful stay. The six bedroom capsules were wide and private with easy access to laundry facilities and bathrooms. Luckily there was no issue sharing showers and toilets as we were six friends. The mattress was also very comfortable and I liked the fact we had additional curtains for privacy. Walking distance to trains and easy access to popular tourist hot spots.
